New process to produce vegetable protein

Until now, animal proteins for the production of concentrate have mainly been obtained from fish meal which is expensive and scarce. However, a new process has been developed that can produce high-quality vegetable protein concentrates as a substitute for fish meal.

The new process has been developed by F.H. Schule Mühlenbau, Hosokawa Alpine and Amandus Kahl.
F.H. Schule Mühlenbau is responsible for cleaning, separation and shelling. Defined separation of shells and fibres of the legumes kernels ensures an economical process.

Hosokawa Alpine does the fine grinding of legumes and separation by means of air classification into protein concentrate and starch concentrate. Amandus Kahl is responsible for gentle pelleting using the flat die pelleting press and cooling for storage and transport of the individual fractions, which are fine-grained to the extent that they cannot be handled without prior pelleting.

Precision process
In comparison with the common standard process, the innovative precision process of protein shifting is an economical and environmentally sound alternative for the supply of new protein resources - this takes into account a medium-term "return on investment".
